    Hello,

    Thank you very much for reading I have recently purchased a 2001 530d touring SE on a Y reg. However, there is now a slight problem with the bonnet i.e it flew up whilst driving so is now mangled, there is the possibility of it being repaired but i think the cheaper option is going to be to source a second hand one from a breakers. However there is some confusion on whether or not my car is the facelifted version just wondered whether anyone could advise whether the facelifted version happened it 2001 on a y reg or not until the 51 reg?

    I have the chasis no if anyone knows anywhere online I can put it in to find out?

    Thanks in advance

    Try RealOEM.com * Online BMW Parts Catalog .. last 7 digits of the VIN and it should give you the BMW part number for your bonnet.

    Once in look under Bodywork/Hood (41/35). Looking under a generic 2001 E39 530d touring, it looks like the bonnet was standard from 98 onwards, so I dont think there was a facelift on that version. 2004 was the change to E60/61 which would obviously be different.

    Thanks, worked out that we have a facelift version of the e39.
    Would like to find out if a saloon bonnet will fit a touring 530d? anyone?

    All the bonnets facelifted or before, touring or saloon are standard - no difference.

    Facelifted added a thicker kidney grill - that was it.
